I purchased a set of tire chains for 1025R rear tire size 26x12x12. The box says they fit 26x12x12 or 27X12x12. The only way to tighten the chains is to go past the first two cross chains. In order for them to fit correctly it appears that you have to shorten the chains by two cross chains. Can anyone tell me is that normal to have to shorten the chains or should they fit right out of box.
I do not want to start shortening a set of new expensive chains and find out I screwed up. An help or suggestions appreciated.
They fit fine as long I hook them past the first two cross chains
Thank You in advance
